Comments

Particulate emissions are very low in all tests, thanks to the diesel particulate filter (DPF). NOx is generally well controlled but becomes elevated in the cold ambient temperature test and the high-load highway test.

Comments

Emissions of N2O are above Green NCAP's upper threshold in most of the tests, and the DS 3 Crossback loses some fractions of a point as a result. Emissions of Methane (CH4) are very low while those of carbon dioxide (CO2) are moderate.

Our verdict

The DS 3 Crossback premiered at the 2018 Paris Motor Show and is sold with conventional combustion engines and as a pure electric. Here, the BlueHDi 100 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel variant is tested. Emissions management is controlled by an EGR system, selective catalytic reduction and a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The latter proves very effective, with low particulate emissions in all tests. Ammonia (NH3), an pollutant not regulated by legislation is less well controlled and points lost because of this lead to a model 4 score for the Clean Air Index. The DS 3 Crossback's strongest performance comes in Energy Efficiency, with a score of 5.8 but its average index, and therefore its star rating, suffers from a score of 3.3 for greenhouse gas emissions. CO2 emissions are not excessive but values of N2O are high in several of the tests. Overall, the DS 3 Crossback sits firmly in 2½-star territory.
